I had bought a GrabOne voucher for two people which gave us a degustation menu at a very good price and we had a memorable meal that was of excellent quality.

My favourite Japanese restaurant in Auckland downtown. Once one of my NZ friends took me to this place and since then it became a must for me - whenever I was in Auckland I used to have a lunch or a dinner there and the meal was absolutely impeccable -juicy, fresh and tasty. It's a pity the restaurant working hours... More

I came here for lunch. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the food served was fresh and tasted fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, my teriyaki salmon was cooked to perfection.

this restaurant has all Japanese staff and almost Japanese customers. I am very glad to have dinner here for many times. I have been to this restaurant many times with different friends and family members, and all of them have a joyful time here and good feedback to this small place. The service stuff is really thoughtful and the dishes... More

Sharaku is situated inside a building compound; signs are rather small for the location. I love the Japanese feel of greetings & hot towels prior to a meal. For the 5-course dinner at Sharaku, we started with a trio of appetizers - interesting & enjoyable, but not particularly good in taste. Then came sushi & sashimi - again, nothing very... More

Have been coming to this place for a number of years now. Despite changing owners/chefs they've kept the food to optimum quality and taste. Dare I say their beef Tataki is the best I've had in Auckland, and their Nabeyaki udon is delicious with tempura prawn and veggies cooked to perfection, served separately to the noodle soup. Sashimi and sushi... More

Friends introduced us to Sharaku and I am so glad they did. I was there again this week and was, once again, delighted by the choice. The Japanese welcome is always effusive and the service aims to assist and please. The various food offerings all look tempting and I do look, with a sometimes envious eye, at what other diners...

I first found this place 15 yrs ago when I worked for a Japanese company and this was the management's preferred local Japanese restaurant for lunch. It has never failed to disappoint since. I love the fact that they use Japanese chefs and wait staff, kimono's are a nice touch as a result. The fish is always fresh and it... More

I would not have found it on my own. In a building lobby with no real indication that it was there. Unfortunately, having a business lunch with 2 others who knew where they were going. Had a Tempura Udon. Very delicious. Of course, I love all things noodles (a recurring theme in my reviews) and this Udon got it done.... More
